Even the political opponents of Governor Cecil D. Andrus think of him fondly. 

Former Idaho Attorney General David Leroy narrowly lost to Andrus in the 1986 race for governor.

"Our Idaho politics and our national politics would be much, much better if the Cecil Andrus character were the rule instead of the exception, in terms of being friendly to even the opposition," Leroy said.
